Jan 9, '03OK Renee,
That's sweet.....SO, what do you really want?
C'mon, just tell us, your among friends!
Jan 10, '03Renee,
You are one of the reasons I decided to go into !
Isn't that crazy? When I was laid off back in Oct. after being a travel agent for 13years, I was needless to say so freaked out about a midlife career change. Since I'm a caretaker for my husband who has numerous medical problems, I thought well I might as well check into nursing.
And check I did, through this board, I've learned more about the ups & downs in this field that I thought imaginable. And nothing I read scared me away, in fact it reconfirmed my decision to go to nursing school.
I found this site also in Oct. and was so impressed w/everyone and learned soooo much about this field. More so than just discussing it w/nurses themselves directly.
I can't tell you how much this board has meant to me either. Its been like a GOD send. Yes sometimes the posts can be rather disturbing to read, but you have to read the bad to appreciate the good. And Renee you are one of the good.
True I don't know you, but from I've read of your posts, I respect you and know your a woman of great faith who practices this in her daily walk. As an example is this thread that you started yourself so you could express your feelings and give thanks.
You are a good example Renee, & I wanted to let you know that you have touched me directly in confirming my decision to become a nurse.. awww, I sound kind of sappy don't I?
Oh well, I hope to hear from you more often in this board, you are again a wonderful inspiration to me and just wanted to share this with you.
Jan 10, '03Wow, thatldo. that is great!! Welcome!! Renee, look what you did! Missed you Renee, how is your new job? How was the move? Give us the scoop!

The ups...the downs...the all arounds...LIFE feels good when I visit these parts for comfort, for friendship, for laughter, a little crying, lots of support, and so much love and caring.

I still don't have my own home computer yet, so I've got 20 minutes left on this library computer to say what I've got to say, so..............
I love you guys and gals! All is going well with me. The budget is very very tight, but God has provided and met all of my needs somehow. I give him all the praise and exhalt His Holy Name forever and ever!
I start orientation at the hospital tomorrow, so won't be back to the library to read emails until next Saturday, so bear with me a little longer. I soooooooooooo miss my home computer.
In due time, I'll be back!!!
Much love everyone! See ya all next weekend! :kiss
